This blog is inspired by a “Jukebox” page I once had on Face Book, before I lost my password.

On the page “fans” posted tons of songs that they loved. It was out of control fun. Anything and everything goes. My motto was: “It’s not your mother’s jukebox, and it ain’t your daughter’s either!”

This blog dedicated to all types of music I love. My tastes run all over the map so there will be something for everyone: punk, new wave, easy listening, country, goth, AM gold, 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s 2000s, spiritual, glam, hard rock, experimental, bubblegum, hardcore, disco, classical, and more, more, more — you name it!

I’ll talk about music that inspires me, music I’ve seen in the past, music I go to see currently.

Music is my life and I’ve written about music for many publications including: The Aquarian Arts Weekly, The Montclair Times, In the Flesh,, and Punk Magazine.

And I am now the author of “On the Guest List: Adventures of a Music Journalist” (Available on Amazon:

To all the music lovers of Generation X — ENJOY!
